Monster Cookies

September 29, 2009

~ Mary ~

Monster cookies – really?  I’m happy to report they were not for John & I – of the 8+ pounds of dough we each only had two (cookies – not pounds!).  Albeit they were the size of softballs.  Anyway the rest went to our very own live Flat Stanley aka Sam.  Who has yet to post a single thing on Foodo – but I believe it’s in the pipeline as I type.  Sam’s a growing teenage boy and this past summer grew more – a hairline away from 6′ 3″ and he still only weighs in at 150 pounds.  So let’s just say these cookies will hopefully play a small part in beefing up the boy!

This is like the LARGEST recipe ever – it doesn’t even all fit in my kitchen aid.  It’s the recipe we used growing up – I don’t know how it all fit – but I know we ate all the cookies fast and had serious gas later 😉

You can really put in more or less additions and these cookies will take ’em like a champ!  I added peanuts and cashews and butterscotch chips and craisins.  You also might just want to cut this monster in half!

MONSTER COOKIES

.

In large electric mixer cream together:

½ Pound Butter

3 Cups Peanut Butter

2 Cups Brown Sugar

2 Cups White Sugar

2 tsp Vanilla

2 tsp White Corn Syrup

6 Eggs

.

Add and mix to combine:

9 Cups Quick Cooking Oatmeal

4 tsp Baking Soda

.

At this point your bowl is probably very full.

You can either add these next ingredients and stir by hand or add and stir with the mixer just until combined.

.

1 Cup Chocolate Chips

1 Cup Butterscotch Chips

1 Cup M&M’s

½ Cup Raisins

½ Cup Chopped Nuts

.

Drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350º about 8 minutes.

Don’t let the chips melt.

Cool and serve.

    Holy cow, the gas! Kev and JP had WAY TOO MUCH ammunition with these around.

    Sam says he’s working on getting to 160 pounds. I said I am too…from the other direction…

    Great photo, btw. I like that John’s smiling and drinking a beer in the background. During that harried and way-too-many-Winkers trip, I do believe that John was smiling because at least there was beer…lots and lots of beer.

    Wow — that’s one serious recipe!
    My hips couldn’t take it, but it’s great food for bulking up the boys!

    I had a friend who used to make cookies called “Monster Cookies.” They were great! The ingredients were something like your recipe. I don’t recall having gas issues when I ate them though. 🙂

      That’s because you aren’t a Winker. We Winkers ALWAYS had gas issues with more foods than I care to mention.

    I haven’t made monster cookies in ages. I always love them because you use of left over candies in them… lol.

    Yum! These look great – and I’m glad to hear the gas issue may just be genetic to your family! 😀
